Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.

One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.

The Moscow Times has a fascinating look at the Russian media outlet RT, formerly known as Russia Today. The Kremlin-funded operation is highly secretive, thanks to non-disclosure agreements that employees are forced to sign, but the Moscow Times was able to get a peek at how the RT sausage gets made.

In a surprise move, RT (formerly known as Russia Today) was temporarily banned from posting articles, photos and videos to Facebook. The ban was instituted yesterday after RT allegedly ran a pirated stream of Obama's last press conference. The ban was scheduled to be lifted at 6:35AM AEDT on Sunday, the day after Trump's inauguration. Facebook lifted the ban at around 6:35AM this morning, after around 20 hours.
